    Do you love the color blue? Do you crave the serenity of indigo? Then join us for a fabulous hands on workshop using natural indigo dye to create one-of-a-kind pattern. You will learn the basics of indigo dyeing and pattern-making using Shibori, the ancient Japanese method of producing pattern. We will use a variety of tools to tie, clamp, bind, and twist fabric to create beautiful textiles. We will enjoy three hours of color play while creating new from the old. Indigo dye pots will be ready for you to get started…Together we will explore developing unique patterns on cotton, silk, linen, or wool fabric. We will supply the dye pots, workspace outdoors, a drying area, and all the materials needed to fold, crimp, tie, clamp, and more! You will be given natural fabric squares to use for dyeing. with some forethought you may create some patterned napkins, prayer flags, a pillowcase, and more. In addition Here's an opportunity to bring in white or neutral colored clothing that may be stained and is as a result no longer worn. Rather than sending these items to the landfill, we have an opportunity to dye them with indigo, so they are back in action and more colorful than before! Participants may bring 1- 3 items of clothing to dye with natural indigo. All fabrics should be 100% cotton, linen, or silk. ?
